Category Archives: Mineral Make Up
Mineral makeup is the beauty secret that has thousands of years of street cred.
Made from minerals such as iron oxides, zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide, mineral make-up is finely milled, into tiny particles to help you create a flawless complexion. At Eden Institute, we pride ourselves on using products such as Colourescience that are free from numerous artificial additives (such as Parabens, Formaldehyde, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and Propylene Glycols) as they can be harmful for your skin.
At Eden we love skin! We love creating beautiful glowing skin for our patients so what better gift than to share with a loved one. To have great skin you need to have medical grade skincare treatments, but also products to support that a home each day, in order to achieve really great anti-ageing skincare results.
Australia’s sun is notoriously harsh, and can accelerate the ageing process dramatically, with wrinkles, pigmentation and sun spots are all caused by overexposure to the sun’s UV rays.
Knowing how to not only protect yourself from further damage but also treat existing sun damage, can prevent your skin from looking tired, dull and damaged by the time winter rolls around.
Laser Skin treatments are fantastic for targeting issues like uneven skin texture, mild acne scars, wrinkles and pigmentation. However optimal results don’t just stop once the procedure is complete. What you do AFTER Laser Skin treatment is equally important to ensure your results are prolonged.
Here are 4 ways to maintain and maximise your Laser Skin Treatment:
1. AVOID THE SUN
Our treatments are medical grade, so the effects and changes are in line with this quality of treatment. As a result, after your laser skin treatment, ensure your skin is adequately protected and avoid any form of sun exposure. Failure to do so can increase your risks of getting hyperpigmentation – something you want to prevent considering all the money and time you are investing into your skin health. When you do go outdoors, bring a wide brimmed hat with you and wear a medical-grade physical sunscreen every day.
Mineral make up has become a familiar term within the makeup and cosmetics industry but many consumers are often unsure as to what truly differentiates it from conventional over-the-counter makeup products.
Like the name suggests, mineral makeup is crafted from a number of different natural minerals, including iron oxides, mica, and zinc oxides. Together, these minerals work to provide coverage, give a natural colour to the skin and reflect light particles for a healthy and luminous glow. So, it’s a natural sunscreen. Major benefits also include the fact that mineral make up generally doesn’t clog the pores and allows the skin to breathe. As a result, it’s an ideal option for everyone, as well as those of us who have problem or sensitive skin, as well as those who have just undergone Cosmetic Procedures such as Laser Rejuvenation or Facial Peels or even Face Lift Surgery.
Mineral make up is often more expensive than over-the-counter cosmetics however it is worth the investment as the benefits can outweigh the cost.
